Dip Stuff

Sadly, I am no longer going to make dips to sell. 

 

With that said, I will keep this page up because they are wonderful ideas that I have tried and others have given to me… I will always make spice mixes to keep in the kitchen!

Ideas and Suggestions for Dip Mixes:

  • Dollop a bit of Garlic Dill Dip on a baked potato to jazz up an old favorite.
  • Mix a packet of Parmesan Herb Dip or Sesame Garlic Dip into mashed potatoes for a new twist!
  • Mix 1-cup mayonnaise with Country Dill Dip mix.  Spread over salmon and bake wrapped in foil.
  • For a warm hors d’oeuvre combine  When Pigs Fly Dip mix with 8 oz softened cream cheese; lightly toast pumpernickel cocktail squares under the broiler; spread bacon cream cheese on untoasted side of bread, return to broiler until warm.  Top with olive slices if desired.
  • Rub olive oil on steak.  Press in 1 T of Black Pepper Parmesan Dip into each steak and grill.
